The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) asks that Websites and Internet-connected apps show a Privacy Disclosure before getting Verifiable Parental Consent. The actual rule that mandates it reads:
312.3 (a) – “Provide notice on the Web site or online service of what information it collects from children, how it uses such information, and its disclosure practices for such information”
In contrast, a Privacy Disclosure is a much more straightforward document. It is meant to tell a parent specifically what types of information they want to collect on a child under 13 before getting a parent’s permission. That way, parents may make an informed decision about the privacy of their child with regard to an operator of a Website or Internet-connected app.
